Recently, mandates are being issued requiring government buildings to reduce their
energy footprints and increase their green building operations, ranging from energy and
water consumption to building air quality. As a facilities energy program manager, you must possess
the right tools in order to assess accurately your building portfolio and propose corrective measure
within your budget.
Building Information Modeling, otherwise known as BIM, is the key that unlocks the door to
greater building efficiency, allowing 3D analysis, prioritizing, and the right choices of energy
performance improvements. Cadapult FM Green integrates seamlessly with BIM software like
Revit Architecture, which can create and/or receive building models for existing structures.
IES acts as a plug-in for Revit products and can be utilized before, during, and after the design
process to help generate energy and carbon performance analysis in easy-to-read charts. In a click,
you can input the location of the building, along with general information about the design, to create
Solar and day-lighting analysis. You can gain a better understanding of how your design ranks within the
booming sustainability marketplace, using tools like egress, cost, HVAC energy modeling, renewable and natural
ventilation, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
